Tips to Perfect Bacon Wrapped Cheddar and Garlic Jalapeno Poppers:
-Give them space. To get perfectly crisp bacon, it should have space around it, so it doesn’t sit next to other poppers – or it will come out soggy and not crisp!
-Set it on a rack. I like to cook these by putting them on top of a cookie cooling rack on top of a baking sheet instead of placing directly on a baking sheet – this helps air circulate around the poppers and helps the bacon crisp evenly!
-Handle with care. Since these poppers don’t have a batter around them, the bacon can fall off if you handle it too much. Minimize how many times you pick up the bacon to keep its shape!
-Make ahead and bake right before your party. These bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers can be assembled up to 24 hours ahead of your party (be sure to wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate if pre-assembling.) so there is no excuse not to have a batch whipped up and ready to go when it’s party time – just pop them in the oven before the party starts!
To Make These Bacon Wrapped Cheddar and Garlic Jalapeno Poppers you’ll need:
Cookie cooling rack that fits over your baking sheet.
Large Mixing bowl.
Plastic gloves (optional).
